The 'Athletes Among Us' photography series injects real life athletes into everyday scenarios, in a sporty way. This is the latest project from talented photographer Jordan Matter, who is most well known for the success of his series 'Dancers Among Us.' This series features all kinds of impressive athletes, from football players to gymnasts.

In one of these shots, viewers see an athlete grocery shopping, but he holds his cart well above his head rather than pushing it. In another shot, there is a gymnast hanging from a street sign on a busy city corner.

The idea behind these photos is that for these athletes, sports and fitness are a part of their everyday life. These shots mix the lives of these athletes with the lives of an average person.
